Tired of School

I'm actually coping better than many of my classmates, but can I just say it here - I am done. Not really, of course, but I am feeling done with the full-time job, going to school, then going home to mostly not see my family because they are sleeping, and then doing it all again. Don't get me wrong. I am actually mostly enjoying my classes. I wish I could get paid to go to them instead of the other way around.

I miss my family. They miss me. I want to be around each night to put the kids to bed and then watch TV with my wife. All the new shows are starting and law school is definitely going to interfere with the new season. Yes, I know, TV is mostly mindless entertainment. THAT is the point. I LIKE mindless entertainment.

We watched Grey's Anatomy last night. I got to talk to my co-workers about it today. That was fun. I want to see what everyone is talking about the next day - and I hope that soon it will have nothing to do with Sarah Palin. It can be sex, drugs, money, how to get unlocked cell phones, fast cars, fast women, family drama, silly fun - I like it all!

I am looking forward to family fun this weekend. I don't know quite what that will look like, but I do know there is still homework tomorrow. How fast can I read (and comprehend) 100 pages?

Happy Weekend, Friends!

Oh, Dakota, I know what you mean. By my last semester, six years in, I was so done. I started on my BS at 37, and I worked full time while attending part time (9 to 12 hrs) for 4 years. Then I was a full time student for the last two years (last year of undergrad and 11 months of grad school). So I threatened to quit, just 2 months short of the degree. I didn't quit, of course, but I was so tired of being away from home and studying all the time when at home.

All I can say is that I do understand, I really, really do. Would a cyber hug help? I can't do much more.

Thanks, Lynilu. That makes me tired just reading about it! Makes my four years seem totally do-able. In reality, I know this year will fly by!

Thanks for the good thoughts.
